Fishing Cove Elementary School was nationally recognized as a Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education in 2017 for exemplary achievement gap closing. At Fishing Cove School we provide a positive, safe and nurturing environment that promotes personal growth and academic success to foster lifelong learning for all students. Fishing Cove offers a dedicated staff, a welcoming learning community, strong PTO support, standards based differentiated instruction and Open Circle social emotional strategies to meet the unique needs of each student. Preschool students experience a Bright Stars 4 star learning environment where students learn through play. 

In addition to academics, Fishing Cove students are Feinstein Jr. Scholars focused on giving back to the community. Students provide canned goods to the North Kingstown Food Pantry, and perform various good deeds for the surrounding community. 

Woven throughout our curriculum is integration of art, music and  technology with environmental learning incorporating the Fishing Cove Bay. Annually each grade from preschool through grade five share their learning during Bay Nights and S.T.E.A.M Days. 

Fishing Cove Elementary School is committed to developing lifelong learners and compassionate citizens that have the ability to contribute and excel in our ever changing world.
